Red Tricycle city guide features Nevada City’s Victorian Christmas

“It’s Christmas time in the city, but if all the bright lights and bustling streets (or maybe the marathon of It’s a Wonderful Life you couldn’t resist watching) have you hankering for a small town Christmas, there is no better destination than Nevada City, California and its annual Victorian Christmas celebration,” .according the Red Tricycle, the popular online city guide for families.

“This gingerbread-trimmed hamlet in the Sierra foothills, about 2 ½ hour drive from San Francisco, is like a portal back in time. Read on to find out where to stay, eat and play.

“Leading up to Christmas, each Wednesday and Sunday in December (not Christmas Eve) the better part of the downtown area is closed to through traffic and open to a bevy of activity. Carolers, roving minstrels, jugglers, costumed characters, horse-drawn carriage rides, local musicians including many children, and other local talent perform throughout the streets, while families wander from vendor to vendor sampling, sipping, noshing, and buying their wares.

“Equally attended by locals and tourists alike, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming.”

When: Wednesdays, December 4, 11 and 18 from 5 – 9 p.m. and Sundays December 15 and 22 from 1:30 – 6 p.m.
